My grandmothers maiden name was Blackman. She came fron Kent, England in 1900 at the age of 18, along with her Siter and their brother joned them a few years later.
Her full maiden name was Ellen Mary Blackman. She married Harry Weatherby. They eventually settled in Albany, NY.She died at the age of 97. I belive that was in 1982, maybe 1981.
She and her husband had several sons Harry, William ("Bill"), Rayond ("Ray"), Howard, Reginald. They also had at least 2 daughters, that I can remember. Dorothy ("Dot") and Marjorie ("Marge").
Dorothy became a Loffman and Marjorie became a Hughes. All have since passed.
